Έχοντας ολοκληρώσει την επιλογή των ταινιών για την 21η διοργάνωση της Camera Zizanio μπορούμε να πούμε, με μεγάλη ικανοποίηση, πως η νεανική δημιουργία, ξεπερνώντας όλα τα εμπόδια της παρατεταμένης πανδημίας, δίνει ένα δυνατό και ελπιδοφόρο παρών.

Mε μάσκες ή χωρίς, τα παιδιά, οι νέοι & οι νέες γέννησαν ιδέες, σενάρια, έπιασαν κάμερες, τάμπλετ ή κινητά και δημιούργησαν ταινίες παρουσιάζοντας τον κόσμο μέσα από τη δική τους ματιά.

You cannot restrict young audiovisual creation!

“Last year has deprived us of several activities we were practicing delightfully, let alone those including art creation. It would be impossible though to remain idle and inactive during that period. Through the activities  that the Olympia Film Festival for Children and Young People and Camera Zizanio always offered, we took the opportunity to create art with instruments and media in full compliance with this covid era.

Our participation in the international online film workshop “Film Days at VBU 2021” engaged us with youngsters from other countries, exchanging ideas but also roles in this occasion. Every national team took footage from another one and added its own touch to the creation of a short film about COVID.

This experience reminded us once more that facemasks won’t prevent us from collaborating with different people and cultures to create art.”
